Another winter day...so tired of this

I can't believe we got snow again and they talk about global warming.  We rarely get snow and this winter we have had snow at least five times already..ugh!  Today I'm supposed to go to UAB to see Bethany for her 19th birthday...can't believe my daughter is 19.  As I sit here, looking out my bedroom window at the snow covered roofs and ground, I am so disappointed.  I check out the road in front of my house and it looks clear.  Wait, what are they saying...the roads are covered with black ice and they have shut down the interstates and bridges...another ugh.  Since I will not be able to see my daughter today and I will just have to escape to my room of solace and make something for her. 

Enough of my pity party and on to something brighter...my card.   I made this for the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 267.  I needed a card for a soccer parent to say thanks.  This layout was perfect...quick and simple.  I didn't realize until I uploaded this card that there was not any stamping on the outside of it. 

The GHS are initials for the high school...Grissom High School.  Even though this card looks a bit like halloween, these are the school colors.  I was hoping by adding ribbon and brads that it would take the halloween look.

I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white panel.  I sponged the edges next to soften them.  The 'ole CB also cut out my stars.  The GHS was made by using my Cricut and the George cartridge.  For something different, I used textured cardstock from Bazzill.

Thanks for stopping by and I enjoy reading your comments.  Have a great day,

Pam~

That yellow gold card stock hopefully brought some warmth into your snowy day. Nice job. Love the mix of textures. Hugs, M
